In Harm's Way Toolkit

Law Enforcement Suicide Prevention: How to Use this Toolkit

download toolkit >>

A Law Enforcement Suicide Prevention Toolkit was developed and distributed to all Florida law enforcement agencies in October of 2007. This Toolkit was designed with input from many law enforcement officers, deputies, and troopers, as well as subject-matter experts to help you present suicide prevention training within your department, reduce the stigma associated with seeking help, and to encourage your officers to roll backup for each other.

The Florida RCPI has uploaded these resources to its web site for your use. Digital copies of the printed materials that were provided in the Toolkit are here for download and printing. All have space for localization: your agency seal/logo; name; phone numbers and other contact information for EAP, Peer Support, CISM, Chaplaincy, Psychologists/Counselors, etc.

You may produce as many copies as you like for free distribution within your agency or for other law enforcement agencies as long as you do not change the text or delete the credit. Some printers will need to see written proof that you have permission to print or copy these materials before they will proceed with the job; this page serves as that permission. You may add your agency's name, address, phone number, and web site where space is provided.

You can research cutting-edge articles on the issue of law enforcement suicide. PowerPoint presentations, model policies and procedures, best practices, research, and recommendations are included. Please browse through this information frequently to learn more about how to develop a strong program within your agency.
